Theresa Clifton, LCSW | Overcoming Anxiety & Depression

Developing a meaningful connection with a personal counselor can lead to long-lasting benefits. While this may prove difficult for some, counselor Theresa Clifton helps clients identify ways to overcome the things that often prevent them from leading the life they ultimately desire.

Hindrances may include:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Grief or loss

  • Relationship and boundary issues

“Most people will experience anxiety and depression at some point in their life, but many will not seek help,” Theresa says. “It takes great courage to seek help. I want clients to know that there is help available to them.”

Counseling can help conquer feelings of:

  • Shame

  • Embarrassment

  • Helplessness

  • Hopelessness

Theresa will help you:

  • Discover solutions to your problems

  • Adopt healthy behaviors and thought patterns

  • Identify and establish safe boundaries with others

  • Connect to educational resources that may aid in personal growth

Theresa’s previous work as a medical social worker has given her valuable insight and experience in helping individuals overcome grief, manage mental health issues and find helpful resources. When you’re faced with a personal crisis, talking to a trained therapist can help you conquer those things that hold you back.
